. it is a little strange to be getting this rain, but we appreciate every drop of it and we are happy to have a big reservoir. i am excited to announce that we have plans to install three small hydroelectric generators here on site. that is a clean, renewable energy source, something that we are committed to. it will replicate on a smaller scale of our large scale hydro project up that hetch hetchy dam . we are thrilled that will be on line. that will be done by 2013. 200 kilowatts per day will be generated by those three facilities, those three generators, enough to power approximately 200 homes. we are excited about that as part of our efforts to move away from dirty, empowered -- imported power sources in san francisco, and an example to our commitment to a clean, renewable energy future. we are excited about that. i want to congratulate the power enterprise staff for this project. they are doing everything they can on the efficiency front to make us a clean, green city. i want to acknowledge them as well. it is a team effort. not only the water enterprise, but the power enterprises making this

the flow -- float in our charter, and that is a big distinction with the alternative proposal that is still being marketed by mr. adachi. it is important for you to know that. that distinction called vested rights. many cities across the country -- when they have not considered the employees' pension has a vested right, they get into legal trouble very quickly. that is why you see litigation around the country sponsored by employee groups who have never been consulted with, being demanded that they pay more into the pension, but there is no consideration of their vested rights. that concept is embedded in our measure were in good and bad times, we share, so they get something out of this reform. because they get something out of it, they are vested in it. the unions continue to view, as i do, that the alternative proposal being sponsored by mr. adachi does not consider vested rights and therefore will be litigated. in that litigation, there is a great chance in my opinion that the proposal will lose. i am not the city attorney, but if you ask the city attorney, as we have -- and we have tha

the neighborhood safer. the multiple shootings in central market are a big setback for the community and has us all deeply concerned but even more determined to assess the city and our community neighbors in making the central market area safer for everyone. i'm here to thank you and the police department and the captains for their ongoing commitment to making central market safer and can't thank you enough for the recent police presence along sixth street for the mobile command unit and for your response to the recent violence in this neighborhood. i'm here to urge you to continue to support efforts to make the area safer from drug using and shootings and other forms of crime which have crippled this community. i also urge you to move forward with the police substation on sixth street. its existence would allow for more effective deployment strategy for area hot spots in this neighborhood. the added benefit of police presence would be an increased feeling of security for the neighborhood residents, merchants, workers and visitors in this area. thank you. >> thank you very much. next speaker. >> go

big elections coming up all over the state. this is a question of who is going to take over the johnson's power position in prince george's connecticut in this void. is it going to be baker and curry and that group, or is it going to be an independent group of black leaders and come up from the grassroots to take over the power structure. so the sooner she's gone the more that coalition, the more that power fight will unfold. >> turning to metro, it was a tough week if you were trying to ride the rails. passengers needed hiking boots because they were malfunctioning around the area. they found flip-flops and sandals stuck in escalators. now, flip-flops don't help the situation anyway. >> no. and they have a continuing problem of inspecting equipment with shaping things up. they complain they don't have enough money. any number of things. staff is being improved since the horrible action we had last year. they're making progress. but things are tough. as one who used the subway this week it was rough. there was no escalator at my various stops. >> i don't know how to add to t

this was a big conspiracy to frame this man. what i learned is -- and i discussed this with geronimo -- we are experiencing men and women who thought the end justified the means. they thought they had a bad man and it was ok to do anything necessary to convict him. as i look back on my career, present and future, i think we see that that is the concept that runs through police misconduct. i am sure there are officers who were just bad, let's say. i think officers see what they consider bad people, and they feel like they have to do what ever it takes to convict them. and i have seen it when i was a young lawyer, when we had narcotics teams, we would get clients to said they arrested me with $20,000 and they said i only had $10,000. and we knew there were telling the truth. it i have seen it with law- enforcement officers in the case where a rogue cop shot a young girl, and the four other officers were all good men. remember -- you talk about misconduct, but primarily -- i want to get back to this -- most law enforcement people i have grown to know in my career are good and i think want to

to the middle of the street. they had a big blob of concrete that went from the wall, the rod, and then the block of concrete. if the wall tried to move, it would engage the rod, which would engage the block of concrete. these were built as gravity walls. they're very, very wide at the base. gosh, some of them are six, eight, 10 feet wide, and they are like dams. they are faced with basalt blocks that came from the quarries in marin county. they have performed very well. the classic gravity wall. there is enough friction along the base, and there is a slope on the backside, so there is enough weight pushing down on the wall that keeps it from moving. >> this is on broadway, along rage and russian hill. >> that is a completely different design. this is truly what is called a cantilever retaining wall. it is designed to rotate and move. you can see the quality of construction. probably what they did in those days, they would take the rock that was present in the vicinity and mix it with the cement and create concrete. so there is no quality control. the strength of that wall var
